If you’re a fan of Rioja and their early ‘Joven’ releases, you’re in for a real treat. Inspired by Ben Chipman’s travels across Europe, where fellow backpackers drank solely out of carafes, this Grenache breathes life into a category known mostly for heavy-duty wines. Fresh, fragrant, uncomplicated.
In 2004, Tomfoolery started as a “fun” project, but over a decade and a half, this duo managed to produce some serious results. Ben “Chippy” Chipman and Toby “Yappy” Yap never tried to pigeonhole themselves with certain labels and their mission was clear – make pure expressions of the beautiful places where their grapes are grown. Find copious appeal for refreshing whites, rich reds and paler shades of rosé.
